I'm not sure where you get that from; woody was released July 20th last year,
which is a little over 3/4th of a year ago, and uploads were being accepted
into testing without special consideration up until pretty much a year ago
today. The libreadline-java from stable, for example, was uploaded on 19th
April 2002, eg.

You can make claims about things like X being overly old (X 4.2 was
released January last year, we're shipping X 4.1 in woody), but that's
not really very meaningful when we're not shipping X 4.3 (released two
months ago) even in unstable.

If you're implying this isn't a good thing, and that we should be providing
current software that's bug free and reliable, you might like to consider
fixing all of:
